  1. in other news, Carnival posted Europe 2022 completely under the radar. no coverage from any media or their corporate news releases page.
  2. Interesting you say that. I love the 10nt Copenhagen r/t Baltic Cruise on June 5th. the two 11nt voyages are okay, but I don't understand the two days at sea from Riga to Stockholm on one itinerary, where on another itinerary, they do it with no days at sea! On the deployment flyer, it is listed as finishing in Copenhagen, but on the website it shows Stockholm. I'm confused lol.
  3. Same, with the exception of the 8nt Vision of the Seas cruises. Not many ships go straight to Portofino, or to Palermo, or to Sardinia/Corsica.
  4. ...and it is a very nice offering of sailings! If there is one thing I noticed, their pricing seems to reflect people's feelings on longer cruises in the post-covid world. 7nt Baltic vs. 10nt Baltic vs. 11nt Baltic are only different by a couple of $! What does everyone else think of them?
  5. I personally would definitely pick the one that includes Istanbul and Ephesus! I've wanted to go to those places for the longest time. Plus Crete isn't found on many itineraries, but the standard "Western Med" (Marseilles, La Spezia) has been offered for as long as I can remember and will probably continue to be. On the idea of variation alone, I think the Rome - Athens - Barcelona cruise is the best! But it is all your pick.
  6. I really like the top one, out of Rome and into Barcelona. Not sure of your departure area in the US, but it gives you more options for nonstop flights if that matters.
  7. On a side note, I'm really hoping that Royal will have a cruise to Israel during the summer season like NCL is planning to have in 2023. Sorry, @JLMoran but that would make your decision a lot more difficult likely! Does anybody think this is possible or would they stick to the Off-season cruises to Israel. only time will tell....
  8. I agree! As a man I really disliked having to shave while sitting on the bed! Really tough to split with a family too.
  9. Going back to this one, I wanted to mention that many years back, I cruised on the Epic and it just did not meet expectations. It felt more like a ferry service with people embarking at EVERY port (not just Rome or Barcelona)... but maybe it changed. Do they have any smaller ships doing med?
  10. Maybe you could do the Oasis-class Western med and then take a train up to Ravenna, then do R-class Eastern Med? Once a year typically they offer a great 8night Itinerary out of Venice/Ravenna that sees Croatia, Montenegro and a bunch of the Isles.
  11. RCL tends to have a 12nt cruise on Vision of the Seas that incorporates alot of both sides of the Mediterranean. not sure which lines you're more loyal to, but I know NCL has some longer itineraries that may better suit your needs. 10nt cruise on NCL Escape, for example....July 2022 Rome (Civitavecchia),Italy Santorini,Greece Athens (Piraeus),Greece Mykonos,Greece Corfu,Greece Valletta,Malta Messina (Sicily),Italy Naples,Italy Florence/Pisa (Livorno),Italy
  12. The last two times I was in Rome, I stayed at Hotel Nerva and Hotel Golden before a cruise. Hotel Golden was cheaper and a better experience overall. I also think they provide pickup service from the airport.
